We Interrupt This Holiday Break For Round Three of the Playoffs

Carrollton City Schools are closed this week for Thanksgiving Break… and for that, everyone is thankful! The students, staff, and faculty are all set to enjoy some much needed down time and rest. But…. we must interrupt this holiday break for round three of the GHSA varsity football playoffs! Our Trojans have risen to the first two challenges of the playoff season and now face a strong foe in the Buford Wolves in round three. The Trojan Nation will have to travel to Buford, Georgia this Friday, November 25th, on what many call Black Friday, but maybe we should rename it “Black and Gold Friday” as we cheer on our Mighty Trojans in their quest for a state championship

Full details for Friday and this entire week can be found below.
